History of the kingdom

Google translation

The kingdom of Bungo Satangkai was a kingdom that  existed in Minangkabau before the founding of Pagaruyung Kingdom and was a part of Pasumayan Koto Batu Kingdom, located in Tarab River, Tanah Datar district now. Kingdom of Bungo Satangkai ‘was founded by Datuk Ketumanggungan and as the Yang Dipertuan or prime minister is Datuk Banadaro Putiah.

According to Tambo Alam Minangkabau (legend), the order of kingdoms was:
1
Kingdom of Pasumayan Koto Batu,
2 Kingdom of  Pariangan Padang Panjang
3 Kingdom of Dusun Tuo founded by Datuk Perpatih Nan Sabatang
4 Kingdom of Bungo Sitangkai
5 Kingdom of Bukit Batu Patah and last
6 Kingdom of Pagaruyung.

After the Kingdom Pasumayan Koto Batu ended, Datuk Ketumanggungan dan Datuk Perpatih Nan Sebatang, who were brothers with different mothers, founded a new kingdom.
Datuk Ketumanggungan founded the Kingdom of Bungo Setangkai at the river Sungai Tarab. Datuk Bandaro Putiah became a kind of prime-minister.
Datuk Perpatih Nan Sebatang founded the Kingdom of Dusun Tuo di Lima Kaum. His prime-minister was Datuk Bandaro Kuniang.
The kingdom of Pasumayan Koto Batu could not be continued, due to disagreement between Datuk Ketumanggungan and Datuk Perpatih Nan Sebatang, when debating the legislation governing Tarik Baleh: “whoever kills, will be killed”. However, the dispute could be settled by Datuk Suri Nan Banego.
